* While the 1991 version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM6ya7wTb58 Monster in the Mirror]] didn't add much besides making the song a CelebrityEdition, it adds this hilarious bit at the end, courtesy of TheSimpsons.
--> '''Bart''': Hey, wubba man!

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zv04EDe4Dsg In another nighttime sketch]], Ernie left the faucet on after washing his hands before going to bed, which results in a DrippingDisturbance that keeps Bert awake. So Bert sends Ernie to turn it off. But instead of simply turning off the faucet, Ernie tries to drown out the dripping by turning on a radio that plays loud music (the music heard is quite hilarious in and of itself). Then, instead of turning off the radio, Ernie turns on an even louder vacuum cleaner to drown out the radio.

** Finally, a frustrated Bert shuts off the racket and then finally settles down into bed for peace and quiet. Alas, Ernie snores as he sleeps!

* For some underrated gems, check out the Alphabet Chat segments from the '70s. Hosted by Mr. Chatterly, a scholarly British man who discusses different letters in each episode (or tries to), they eventually devolve into chaos as other Muppets barge in and ruin everything. They basically are just the classic main four Muppeteers (Jerry Nelson as Chatterly and Henson, Oz, and Hunt as the various goofy passers-by) goofing around with each other and improvising, and they're almost always funny. The later, more tightly-scripted segments are also decent, but the chaos of the originals is always funny.

* All of the "Monsterpiece Theater" sketches are a riot, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFLbKtcwtZY the very first one]] (spoofing ''Series/UpstairsDownstairs'') may just be the funniest of all.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2kouz-zbxg Bert and Ernie go to see a movie]] that makes Ernie emotional, disturbing the other theatergoers around him. And yet, guess who gets punished for this!
